A Young Steph Curry Predicted His Future In A 1990s Burger King Ad
Huffington Post - about 1 year
YOOOOOO this Steph Curry/Dell Curry Burger King commercial they just found on the Warriors broadcast is EVERYTHING pic.twitter.com/B9P9nFulLt — Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) January 5, 2016 In Stephen Curry's mind, his future as a basketball star has never been in doubt. And now, there's video proof of it, via a 1990s Burger King commercial featuring "Dell Curry and son" which CSN Bay Area dug up and aired during Monday night's Charlotte Hornets-Golden State Warriors game in Oakland. "What do you want to be when you grow up?" asks Dell Curry to his young son in the ad's opening line. Eager and immediately -- almost as if it was rehearsed (well, of course it was) -- a young Stephen replies, "A basketball player."  Thus the genesis of Stephen Curry, transcendent NBA shooter, was aired for all to see in the 1990s. According to the end of the ad, all little Curry needs to become a great player like his pops is a certain attitude: "You've really got to be hungry for it," D ...

Curry honours father, vintage game for Bryant
Yahoo News - about 1 year
Reigning league MVP Stephen Curry honoured his father with an explosive third quarter performance and Kobe Bryant took his farewell tour up another notch in a pair of key NBA contests. Curry watched at halftime as his father and former Charlotte star Dell Curry was featured in a half-time ceremony then followed up with a 28-point third quarter as the Golden State Warriors easily defeated the Hornets 116-99. Bryant, who announced three days ago he was retiring at the end of the regular season, rattled in the go-ahead jump shot with 30 seconds left in the fourth en route to a 108-104 win over the Washington Wizards.

Stephen Curry Is Way Better Than His Dad At Playing HORSE
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Steph Curry might the best shooter in NBA history, so trying to beat him in a game of HORSE will be very unlikely. His father, Dell Curry, who also played in the NBA, recently learned that lesson in a clip for GQ. Dell grabbed an early lead, but anyone who has watched Steph play during his career knew that he was going to come back -- similar to the way the Warriors came back against the Clippers on Thursday night. I mean, how the hell is Dell supposed to replicate this? At 51 years old, Dell is still in great shape, but even he would probably admit that he's probably too washed up to try and compete with Steph. Time for a victory dance.    Also on HuffPost: (function(){var src_url="https://spshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=519265280&height=&width=100&sid=577&origin=SOLR&videoGroupID=155847&relatedNumOfResults=100&responsive=true&ratio=wide&align=center&relatedMode=2&relatedBottomHeight ...

The Golden State Warriors' best start in franchise history is now a family affair as Stephen Curry scored 34 points in a 107-99 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.

Stephen Curry’s Uber-Complicated Dribbling Drills Are Not Of This World
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Your browser does not support iframes. Behold, a master perfecting his craft. Every time Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry dribbles on a basketball court, onlookers can only hope that the reigning NBA MVP decides it's time to unveil a new, unbelievable move. Watching certain players can become repetitive. Curry is decidedly not one of those players. He's already flooded Vine with a bounty of moves, and he's only getting better. His MVP-level plays don't just happen by the grace of his dad, former NBA player Dell Curry, and his basketball-ready genes. It takes practice. Curry has an entire arsenal of impossible-to-do dribbling drills, but a new video from CSN Bay Area shows another way Curry practices to achieve his in-game dribbling masterpieces: adding a tennis ball and some weird glasses to the mix. What. Is. He. Doing.  At no point during the drill does Curry appear to be worried about or even aware of the basketball he's dribbli ...

They're Back
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Charlotte is the home of the Hornets once again. The NBA unanimously approved Charlotte's nickname change from Bobcats to Hornets on Thursday at the league's Board of Governors meeting. The original Hornets built a supportive fan base in Charlotte from the time they entered the league in 1988 until they moved to New Orleans in 2002. But the new owners in New Orleans have changed the team's name to the Pelicans. That opened the door for owner Michael Jordan to bring the Hornets name back to Charlotte. The change will take place after the 2013-14 season. "We're thrilled to bring back the Hornets to Charlotte and the Carolinas," Jordan said in a statement issued by the team. "The passion and enthusiasm around this name change by fans in this market has been unmatched. They overwhelmingly told us what they wanted, we listened and we couldn't be happier with the Board of Governors' approval of the name change. With th ...

Warriors' Curry has shot built to last
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 4 years
Warriors' Curry has shot built to last Dell Curry is the TV color analyst for the Charlotte Bobcats. Curry checked into his hotel room and flipped on the TV to the ESPN NBA game, Warriors against Knicks at Madison Square Garden - which was about to become Studio 54. Dell's son Stephen had scored four points in the first quarter, on 2-for-6 shooting. Late in his career when he gave shooting clinics, he brought along his two sons, Stephen and Seth, who loved hoops and didn't mind sitting through Dad's lectures. Jerry West, a Warriors special adviser, bristles when he talks of the All-Star snub. There are (three-point) specialists, but he's definitely the best player and shooter I've ever played with. ... [...] the percentage he's hitting from three-point range is ridiculous. No, the scouting report that night (against the Knicks), especially with David (Lee) being out, and Steph being obviously our go-to guy, probably was all about him. West praises Curry's ...

The Sixers: The Playoff Team That Shares
Wall Street Journal - almost 5 years
The Chicago Bulls are trying to beat the Philadelphia 76ers without their leading scorer and only 20-points-per-game man, Derrick Rose, who will miss the rest of the playoffs with an injury he suffered in garbage time at the end of Game 1 of the Chicago-Philadelphia first-round Eastern Conference series. Reuters Maybe Lou Williams would have cleared 15 points per game if he’d gotten a start this season. The Sixers are trying to win the same series without a 20-point-per-game man, too. They lost him more than five years ago, when they traded Allen Iverson  to Denver during the 2006-07 season. Since then, Philadelphia hasn’t had a single player average more than 20 points per game while playing enough games to qualify for the points-per-game leaderboard. This year, Philly’s leading scorer is sub Louis Williams, with 14.9 points per game. That makes the Sixers the only playoff team even in this low-offense year who didn’t have a player on the scoring leaderboard averaging mo ...
